Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I always add extra potatoes and carrots to cut and freeze with left over roast to use for soup later.( My favorite reason to make roast!) I also always freeze all leftover broth to use in any recipe calling for beef broth, it has a much better flavor than the canned version. I do not separate the cooked fat from the broth before freezing.
